The BeatBox 

Step 1 — The BeatBox 

• The first thing you do is to find a 
box, make a box, or buy a box. We 
bought our box from Michaels 
which was $2.00. 

• On the inside, mark where you 
would like to put the USB hole. 
Then drill at the approximate place. 
You don't have to be super exact. 
All that matters is that the 
Arduino's USB can fit. The resistor 
on the image is 1 m 

Step 2 

• Configure the electronics on a 
small breadboard, as shown. (Note: 
The resistor is the 1m resistor.) 

• The breadboard can be any size as 
long as the black of the sensor is 
connected to one end of the 
resistor which is connected to 
ground and the red of the sensor is 
connected to one end of the 
resistor which is connected to

• Next, you need to write some code. 
I did the writing for you so its more 
of uploading my code. The code is 
available here.
